Batteries Not Included is a film that I put together early this year, after I made the film I did not know what to do with it because it is so much different than the Experimental art films that I am most known for doing. I decided to release this film on the internet and I thought the best place to do this would be right here on the Internet Archives.

A "Live" 1953 commercial for Kix Cereal. This is taken directly from an episode of "Ding Dong School", which can also be downloaded on the internet archive. The host of the show, who to an extent had creative control, insisted that only products that were beneficial to children could be advertised on the program. This is a long commercial, but there were only two commercials during the entire 30-minute broadcast. See complete broadcast here: Ding Dong School

An old interview of Bruce Lee. The episode was filmed in 1971 and got losed, in 1994 they found it and aired the episode as a tv special under ''Bruce Lee: The Lost Interview''. All American pictures made before 1989 without a copyright renewel fell in the public domain,Because this interview was lost for so long it never gotten a copyright renewel. So it is automaticly public domain.

A Classic 1950's Commercial for Post's Sugar Crisps. Cheap, but cute. DISCLAIMER: This video does not represent the quality of major Hollywood cartoons of the time. Nor does it represent the quality of major Tele-cartoons of the time ("Clutch Cargo" didn't air until several years after this commercial, so it doesn't count. Then again, "Clutch Cargo" was already crap by the standards of it's time). Heck, it stinks by the standards of most advertising cartoons of the time....

Aired 1957, here's three commercials for the ill-fated Edsel car (1958 model year?), which despite some innovative features ended up being a major commercial failure. The car is considered a sought-after classic today. This was back when a 60-minute show often had less than 10 minutes of commercials, but the commercials were often all for the same company!

After a customer is overly eager to buy a crystal egg, an antique shop owner does the only logical thing: takes it to the chairman of Cambridge's physics department (played by Thomas Mitchell, Uncle Billy from It's a Wonderful Life), who discovers the egg's secret. From a story by H. G. Wells More info at the IMDB . Upload courtesy of Inventing Situations . Hopefully in the public domain.

One of the few surviving episodes of "Queen for a Day", from 1960. One of the strangest shows ever to air on TV. Please note that most shows of the 60's were MUCH BETTER than this.

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes "The Case of the Texas Cowgirl" Originally aired November 8, 1954. Minnie O'Malley, a cowgirl in a travelling rodeo, seeks help from Sherlock Holmes--to remove a dead body from her hotel room! Strangely, Holmes seems to be more than happy to comply. Suspects range from a Blackfoot Indian, the owner of the rodeo Bison Jack, and a meek salesman across the hall. Easily the most ridiculous episode of the entire series.
